Reservations are by the week (Saturday to Saturday) during the summer season. There is a two night minimum stay for cottages in the spring and fall. Rates do not include State of Michigan Tax (6%), Traverse City Tourism Assessment (5%), or any gratuities.
A deposit of 50% of the cottage or room rate required to secure a reservation. Deposits are refundable with 60 days notice.
We are sorry but we do not allow any pets at Watervale during the summer season. Pets are allowed in cottages during the spring and fall with prior approval.
Smoking is not permitted in the dining room, cottages or any public spaces.
Your cottage comes equipped with sheets and towels (but please bring your own beach towels). Cots, pack n plays, high chairs and hair dryers are available upon request. There is a free lending library for books, puzzles and toys. Rowboats, canoes and kayaks are available to use. Watervale also provides a spot for reusing beach toys and inflatables. For the sake of the lake…it’s peace and beauty… we allow no jet skis and strongly discourage wake boats as they endanger our shoreline.

We are looking forward to the upcoming Watervale season! The 2020 season had many challenges but also several opportunities to reimagine how we do business. We certainly hope that 2021 will bring some relief to this pandemic but rest assured that we will work hard to create a safe, relaxing and enjoyable respite from the outside world.
Reservations begin in January. Please check our availabilities page for any openings.
